'Craftree' the combination of Tree and Craft, means creating the artwork rooted in the spirit of craft and embodies true craftsmanship.
'Craftree' is the contemporary-design premium brand combining the mother-of-pearl
techniques and major 2 materials of metal and lacquer and represents contemporary and sensible products.
In addition, the mother-of-pearls with the most beautiful color were selected and
attached one by one using the 'cutting technique' to highlight unique exquisiteness
and elaborateness of handicraft, reinterpreting the traditional mother-of-pearl inlaying technique.
We intend to present the most honest "craft" based on the attitude of offering the gift to our loved ones.
